IHC Donates Cots ti) Nursery School
By DEBRA DURCHSLAG
inter-House Council has taken
54 children under its wing as this
year's Christmas project.
Christmas gifts for those in need
are customary in the residence
halls, but this is the first time the
Council itself is sponsoring a drive.
PROMPTED by the spirit of the
season, IHC is donating special
aluminum-frame cots for children
in the Perry Nursery School.
The Perry Nursery, located on
the corner of Madison and Divi-
sion, is a Community Chest or-
ganization run for children of
working mothers. Open from
7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., it helps many
mothers who might otherwise
be totally separated from their
children. Rates vary according
to ability to pay, but are usually
under $30 per month.
The Community Chest contrib-
utes approximately 41 per cent of
the Nursery's upkeep, the rest be-
ing covered by fees, but the bud-
get is still strictly limited. Certain
replacements that should be made,
are therefore beyond the budget.
IHC has stepped into this situa-
tion, and is helping to replace the
school's cots. Since the children
are at the nursery almost nine
hours a day, a restful nap is im-

IHC'S CHRISTMAS CHARITY
Today is the final day for
making reservations for J-Hop
tickets. All students may make
these reservations at a first-
floor window in the Adminis-
tration Building. Tickets, priced
at $7, will be available im-
mediately following Christmas
Twelve employes of the Ann Ar-
bor Railroad Express Agency stop-
ped work yesterday when several
Detroitrunion members picketed
The Detroit employees have been
on strike for seven weeks in an at-
tempt to receive a 30-cent-an-hour
wage raise. Local express men are
not striking, but are honoring
picket lines thrown around the ex-
press office at 120 S. First St.
*~ * *
THE STRIKE, which does not
affect freight, has caused a "pile-
up" of parcels and packages at the
local express office according to
an Ann Arbor employee.
Expressmen at present are not
delivering packages, however.
Those already deposited in post
offices must be picked up by ad-
dressees, who will be notified if
there are packages for them.
Those at the express station
must also be called for by ad-
Picketers from Detroit also ap-
peared yesterday in Pontiac, Bir-
mingham, Mt. Clemens and De-
troit. The National Mediation
Board is seeking a settlement in
talks in New York.
Local employes expressed hope
that picketers would allow them
to go back to work sometime to-
day so that a huge overflow of
parcels would not prevent deliv-
ery before Christmas.

Fresh Christmas trees through-

WITH PROPER care, even thej
lowly spruce can be kept green and
even made to sprout buds, the for-
esters point out.
Though often blacklisted for
early shedding of its needles as
it dries, the tree can compete
with all others if it has been cut
recently and is not allowed to
According to Murray, the "Aus-
trian pine is the prettiest tree lo-
cally produced, although it is hard
to tell from the Scotch pine, which
grows faster and is more open in
* * *
SCOTCH pines are being very
widely planted in Michigan for
use as Christmas trees, he explain-
Warm weather this fall may
have a negative effect on how
long cut trees can be expected to
keep their needles this year,
Prof. Davis pointed out. Though
even if cut in October, as most
are, a cool and moist storage
place will enable them to keep
their needles as long as more
recently cut ones.
Most pine is too coarse for mak-
ing wreaths and house decora-
tions, Murray said, but white pine
is included in the list of best in-
gredients, along with balsam,
spruse and white cedar.!
Of the cones, all are good for
decorative purposes, except the
pitch covered white pine cones.

Who lives at the sign of the
Men and women students on the
undergraduate and graduate level.
Americans and foreign students,
live in the six houses on campus
that display a twin pine symbol.
The pines are the symbol of the
American Cooperative Movement
and the houses are student co-ops.
Who Owns and Manages Each
Each student who joins co-ops
becomes part owner and manager
of the house in which he lives.
Just as any owner proud of his
property he helps to plan and
cook 'the meals, choose a new
Scouch for the living room or help
decide on the color of the paint
to be used in the hall.
And, if the co-oper is a par-
ticularly conscientious proprietor,
who helps to keep his house run-
ning at a top, level of efficiency,
he and his housemates may be
rewarded at the end of the semes-
ter with a cash dividend derived
from savings on the cost of oper-
ating the house.
How Much Time Does a Co-op
Member Spend on House Duties?
A co-oper is primarily a student.
The scholastic level in co-ops is
usually high. Each co-op mem-
ber, therefore tries to learn to run

Co-op Living Cost?
On the average the rate for
room and board comes to about
$12 a week. Boarders pay approx-

ing unit on campus.

What Sort of People
Live in Co-ops?
Members of S.L., Daily Editors,
stars of University dramatic pro-
ductions, Hopwood winners as well
as people who do not .care to par-

lived in co-op.
In co-ops no pressure is put on
any member to conform to a -norm
of participation in activities or a
standard of dress and habits.
Each member naturally partici-
pates in house activities to the
extent that it is necessary for him
to do so, in order to keep the house
